Americans today are suffering under the most vicious and brutal conditions we have ever experienced. But wait….things are fine, the restaurants are full….what do you mean Americans are suffering?
Well, we’re not yet feeling the real consequences of the suffering that is all around us, lying in wait like a latent virus, just waiting to become active.
The seeds of real suffering have been sown all across this country primarily by the banks and financial institutions that both gutted our economy, then received billions in bailouts from your money.
The corporations in power have resources and the means to punish anyone who dares to speak out, anyone who dares to talk about what they’ve done and who is warning of the consequences.
Your naive notions of what it means to be an America may lead you to believe you can talk about the wrongs, the evil, the crimes that are being committed all around you, especially by the powerful corporations, but I stand before you as a testament that speech is not free, dissent is being silenced and dissenters are being punished.
I’m not talking about me. I’m talking about other attorneys and bloggers who are being targeted and attacked in very direct, very specific and very frightening ways.
Consumer attorneys, journalists and bloggers are the last line of defense against total tyranny, the last best hope for the freedoms of all Americans.
I want you all to read the following post and consider how in these most dangerous of times suppression of speech impacts you.
